Dear WG members,

As you've probably seen and heard during the last calls, we've been working
on the Open Content Exchange Platform for Europeana Space, an online
platform providing access to documentation around open licensing and
creative reuse of cultural heritage content (see

In the next months we want to further improve the platform and add more
resources (especially newer ones), and therefore it would be great to get
your feedback. What do you think of the platform so far? Do you know 1-2
resources that should be in there, perhaps from your country? Do you know
other good resources we should check out or connect to?

Many thanks for your help!

Best regards, Lieke Ploeger

Dear all,

A new blog has just been published on OpenGLAM on the fist version of the
Open Content Exchange Platform:

This platform has been developed by Open Knowledge within the context of
the eSpace (Europeana Space) project, focused on developing possibilities
for creative reuse of digital cultural content. The Open Content Exchange
Platform provides guidelines and tools for the effective exchange of public
domain and openly licensed content between both suppliers and users of open
content, and has been built using Omeka (similar to our recently updated
Open Collections page).

There are a variety of different resources in the platform on the topic of
reuse of open cultural heritage content, such as guides, case studies,
videos, papers, books and presentations: through the search interface, you
can easily filter on specific content, or on specific tags. All resources
of our OpenGLAM Documentation page have also been incorporated – in the
future, a version of the new platform will replace our Documentation
webpage to provide a more user-friendly and updated overview.

Feedback on the platform is very welcome: are there any resources you would
like to see included? Do you have specific questions around the reuse of
cultural heritage material that you would like to find guidance on? Would
you like to be able to search the platform in different ways? Let us know
in the comments of the blog, or by replying to this email.

Best regards, Lieke Ploeger.
